Diamond Kitchen (钻石小厨)
In an blink of an eye,the restaurant has been around for 14 years. Who would expect there is a Chinese restaurant located inside Laguna PArk Condominium. I still remember my first visit ten years ago after an article by Straits Times food critic Wong Ah Yoke brought it to fame. The restaurant saw snaking queues overnight, and I heard they even had to turn away customers. Current that the restaurant continues to maintain its standard and quality, dishing out delicious dishes.

Song Yue Taiwan Cuisine (松悦台式料理) @ Kallang Leisure Park - A Showcase of Taiwanese Homestyle Specialities Alongside Exquisite Fine Teas

SongYueTaiwanCuisine14

Song Yue Taiwan Cuisine (松悦台式料理), a celebration of Taiwan's culinary heritage, has left an indelible mark on my gastronomic journey this year. The restaurant, a gem nestled in the heart of Singapore, artfully crafts a menu that accentuates the natural goodness of seasonal produce. Recommending it to friends has become a familiar refrain, and I'm already planning a return for another delightful dinner.

SongYueTaiwanCuisine2
Taiwanese Style Pickled Chilled Dishes 4/5

Our dinner at Song Yue commenced with a trio of Taiwanese-style home-pickled chilled dishes. While the Pickled Cherry Tomatoes with Sour Plums presented a familiar delight, the Winter Melon Pickled with Fresh Passion Fruit and Pickled Cabbage & Radish introduced a refreshing novelty.

SongYueTaiwanCuisine6
Pineapple Prawns with Crispy You-Tiao 4.2/5

A standout from many Taiwanese menus, the Pineapple Prawns with Crispy You-Tiao ($18.90) featured prawns delicately battered and wok-tossed with pineapples in a citrusy mayonnaise dressing. The addition of homemade dough fritters stuffed with hand-beaten squid and prawn paste elevated the dish, providing a delightful textural contrast.

SongYueTaiwanCuisine10
Traditional Ginger Duck 4.2/5

The Traditional Ginger Duck ($19.90/ $36.90) delivered a bowl of comfort with tender duck stewed in a rich broth infused with ginger and black sesame oil. It was a warm embrace of earthy and nutty notes.

SongYueTaiwanCuisine16
Farm Chicken with Spring Onion 4.5/5

Equally compelling was the Farm Chicken with Spring Onion ($18.90 Half/ $33.90 Whole). The local kampong chicken, poached to perfection, was paired with a homemade fresh spring onion and ginger dipping sauce, creating a symphony of natural flavours.

SongYueTaiwanCuisine17
Salt and Pepper Promfret with Crispy Garlic Chips 4.2/5

The Salt and Pepper Promfret with Crispy Garlic Chips ($35.90) showcased a pristine promfret, deboned and fried to a crispy golden perfection. Seasoned with salt and pepper, it was adorned with crunchy, deep-fried garlic chips for an aromatic finish.

SongYueTaiwanCuisine22
Silken Tofu with Pumpkin and Crabmeat 4.5/5

The Silken Tofu with Pumpkin and Crabmeat ($18.90) is an uplifting symphony of flavours, where the silkiness of white tofu meets the sweetness of golden pumpkin and the umami richness of fresh crabmeat.

SongYueTaiwanCuisine23
Slow-Braised Pork Ribs with White Radish 4/5

The Slow-Braised Pork Ribs with White Radish ($18.90) presents succulent prime ribs and sweet white radish, lovingly simmered over low heat in a soy-based sauce infused with a variety of herbs. The result is a dish where the ribs become melt-in-the-mouth tender, offering a delightful harmony of flavours.

SongYueTaiwanCuisine28
Crispy Egg with Black Sesame Oil 5/5

A seemingly simple dish, the Crispy Egg with Black Sesame Oil ($16.90), garnered rave reviews. Perfectly fried fresh eggs with crisp edges and a soft, oozy centre were simmered in a sweet-and-savoury sauce made with fragrant local black sesame oil. This dish, suitable for all ages, pairs wonderfully with a bowl of rice.

SongYueTaiwanCuisine31
Ah Ma's Rice Vermicelli and Taro Soup 4.5/5

The Ah Ma's Rice Vermicelli and Taro Soup ($19.90/ $32.90) pays tribute to the nostalgic Taiwanese rice vermicelli soup. Crafted using the finest rice vermicelli from Xin Zhu, it is presented in a rich, aromatic pork bone broth with sliced pork, dried shrimp, lala clams, shiitake mushrooms, and fragrant taro. Every spoonful evokes a warm embrace of tradition and comfort, reminiscent of grandma's cooking.

SongYueTaiwanCuisine35
Cabbage and Hokkaido Scallop Stone Pot Rice 4.2/5

For those who adore rice, the standout is the Cabbage and Hokkaido Scallop Stone Pot Rice ($19.90/ $32.90). It is crafted with top-notch grade 1 short-grained rice from Tai Chung, renowned for its sweetness and firm, slightly chewy texture. Served in a piping hot stone pot, the Taiwanese Cabbage Rice rendition adds a smoky flavour to the rice, crowned with seared Hokkaido scallops.

SongYueTaiwanCuisine39
Chilled Oolong Ai-Yu Jelly with Green Lemon 4.2/5

SongYueTaiwanCuisine40
Sweet Potato in Ginger Soup 4.2/5

The meal concluded with traditional homemade desserts, including the nourishing Double-boiled Apple & Pear in White Fungus Soup ($7.90), wholesome Sweet Potato in Ginger Soup ($6.90), and the invigorating Chilled Oolong Ai-Yu Jelly with Green Lemon.

SongYueTaiwanCuisine43
Double-Boiled Apple & Pear in White Fungus Soup 4.2/5

Beyond the delectable dishes, Song Yue Taiwan Cuisine also places a spotlight on Taiwan's tea culture. With a selection of premium Taiwanese teas sourced directly from small family tea farms, the restaurant offers a delightful journey into the world of Taiwanese tea. The in-house certified tea specialist ensures a perfect brew, complementing the dining experience. The restaurant's homemade chilled tea and fruit beverages add an extra layer of enjoyment to an already exquisite meal. A visit to Song Yue is not just a meal; it's an exploration of Taiwan's culinary richness and a journey through the island's tea culture.

One Pot (一锅) @ Jalan Benaan Kapal (Kallang Park) - Cheap & Quality Hotpot In A Ulu Food Centre

OnePot18

In my wildest imagination I would not have imagine having hotpot in an ulu food centre that I have not even known of its existence. I love eating hotpot, so for my birthday celebration, I suggested to go to One Pot (一锅) at Kallang Park after reading MissTamChiak review of the place.

OnePot14

I was taken back to find a food centre located at a quite corner in Kallang Park. Even all the stalls were closed except for One Pot during my visit. However the place is packed with people having hotpot.

OnePot5

Diners can choose from the pork, chicken or beef set. The pricing begins from $15 for a pax to $60 for 5 pax. The set is served in a wooden box. It comes with fresh ingredients such as the choice of meat (depend on the set you order), fish, quail eggs, luncheon meat, fish balls, crab sticks, prawns, minced meat, mushrooms, tang hoon and vegetables. I have to say that is some presentation.

OnePot3

OnePot19

You can be guaranteed of quality when you sight Brent the stall owner, slicing fresh pieces of pork and beef using the meat slicer. Who says you can't enjoy quality Kurobuta Pork and Australian Ribeye in a hawker centre. You will get this at One Pot.

OnePot12

Besides the ingredients from the set box, depending on Brent's morning marketing, you may also find other ala carte items on the menu. During my visit, we ordered the meatball, dumpling, fish dumpling and beancurd skin.

OnePot17

One Pot for the time being only offers Japanese Pork Bone soup base for their hotpot. Unfortunately there are no other soup bases. Trust me the Japanese pork bone soup base is really tasty and goes well with the ingredients. Noteworthy is the dipping chilli sauces, one is spicy and the other slightly sweeter.

What stood out for One Pot is its value for money hotpot with quality ingredients. My meal above for 4 pax is only around $60. It probably will cost you around $100 in some hotpot restaurants. Furthermore, parking there is free too. However, do call Brent to make a reservation before going down to avoid disappointment.
